Larsen & Toubro Limited’s (L&T) Heavy Engineering Division has been awarded an order to manufacture and supply of ten Hydrotreating Reactors and twelve Coke Drums for Petrobras’ prestigious 200,000 bpd North-east Refinery Project in Brazil.

The total value of the order is approx US$160 million. This is the largest order ever received by L&T from South America.

The reactors will be manufactured from advanced technology steels containing Chromium, Molybdenum and Vanadium, whilst the coke drums will be manufactured using Cr-Mo Steel. These reactors and coke drums will be delivered to the refinery in Brazil in the financial year 2010-11.

Anticipating the developments in the global hydrocarbon industry, L&T has proactively embarked on a major expansion programme at its state-of-the-art manufacturing facility at Hazira, which is rated as one of the largest and most modern integrated manufacturing complexes situated on a water front with easy access to the sea.

In addition, a new heavy fabrication facility is under construction at Sohar, Oman. This facility will be a first-of-its-kind venture in the G.C.C. region & will have the capability to manufacture critical equipment for refineries, petrochemicals and fertiliser projects apart from other process industries.
